If my card today looks very familiar, it’s because it has many of the same elements of the card I posted yesterday.  While the one yesterday had a watercoloring panel behind the flower, this time I did sponging with Stampin’ Sponges, Whisper White cardstock and  Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight stamp pads.  There’s a definite learning curve, at least for me, with the sponging technique. I love the look but wasn’t happy AT ALL with what I created below.  But you know what?  I think it looks great behind the flower!  Until then, I will keep on trying this technique until I’m great at it!

The ribbon I used is from the 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack.  It’s a Sale-A-Bration freebie.  You get 2 rolls,  silver and gold, and it’s gorgeous in person as it has beautiful gold and silver accents woven in.  Place a $50 order, before shipping and handling, and you can choose this ribbon as your free gift!

The sentiment is from the stamp set Window Shopping in the Occasions catalog and it’s stamped using Memento Ink.   I tried to center it on my card but it seemed off a bit so I thought the rhinestones might distract from that.  Did it work??

All of the supplies I used are listed below.  Please note that I did NOT use the Framelits with the Window Shopping stamp set but it is part of a bundle and a 10% discount.  I’m noting it in the product list in case you are interested in purchasing both of them.
